    Well, it is one of my cheaper/less valuable cameras, and a dip in the lake isn't likely to hurt it much. Besides, if you fear using your tools, what good are they?

    I fear water and ANY camera. :greenpbl: I freely admit it. When we hiked down the Narrows out in Utah and my husband put his Rollei in a wet-bag, I thought he was nuts! I was nervous until we got out of the water. :lol:

    I've completely soaked several of my old cameras (several hours of rain, not dunked in a lake). When I get home I just disassemble them as much as possible, and let them dry out. Bad weather and risky conditions are often when/where the best shots are. It's just another reason why I prefer the old cameras.

    Here is a link to a great story about a guy who dunked his digital camera...

    Here's a better gallery of image from the camera

    Conan is from Texas, and he sort of hates it. It cracks me up when he wears that T-shirt too. You can tell from the holes that it's one of his favorites.

    Awesome stuff!!! And a wild story, to boot. This is probably the best digital stuff I've ever seen where the photographer honestly says, "No photoshopping done, this is straight from the camera." :lol:
